Hey <<First Name>>, 

I've noticed something about creatives who live in New York City:

They are really good about traveling. Not even taking vacations, as they usually don't fully disconnect during these trips, but they still make a point to travel on average at least three times a year separate from work or family obligations.  

Even though 9-5ers (myself included) tend to save travel for the summer months and extended holiday breaks, we're going to need a creative change of pace even more once the weather gets colder and the days get shorter. 99u had a great article about creative road-tripping that you should check out if you want travel for a creative project.

I'm exploring the role of travel more in my own creative practice. One example is the season finale of The Highwater Podcast, which I recorded on-location at the 5th Annual BlackStar Film Festival in Philadelphia PA this past August. I was super nervous about recording on the road, as I only had a Zoom H4N Recorder, a wired lavalier mic, headphones, and the patience of the artists who were kind enough to let me interview them in between panels and screenings.
